Print version of book. I'm not sure of the exact version. Bought from Amazon on the 8th September 2018.
Contains numerous characters in the diagrams that are printed as little boxes, where they should be number and letters. Most prominent in the first 2 chapters, and at the end the discount code is also printed a just empty boxes.
I took some pictures - 10, 23, 25 but they mostly don't include the page number.
Would you please send me a PDF version? I'm sending it back but I'd expect this to be a flaw in the print run and not a one off, so it doesn't make sense to ask for a replacement print copy.
I can send you the images if you like.

"Let’s see how this plays out for even larger arrays. With an array of 10,000
elements, a linear search can take up to 10,000 steps, while binary search
takes up to a maximum of just thirteen steps."
Shouldn't that be fourteen steps?
2 to the power of 13 is just 8192 and that is less than 10_000.
